Thank you for your patronage, be assured your attendance at the Market is greatly appreciated by all members of the community who benefit from your support. We endeavour to keep the rules to a minimum but unfortunately to maintain a safe environment and working within the requirements of the bureaucracy, we apply the minimum rules possible.
 
The smooth running of the markets by unpaid Rotary Volunteers takes a considerable effort, requiring us to be as efficient as possible with our Rotarians time. Your cooperation is appreciated. 
Thank you and have a great day!
